Today is Thursday, Feb. 14. Here are five things you need to know in Hamilton and Wenham:
1. Clouds: Thursday is forecasted to start cloudy with an increasing chance of sun coming out later. Temperatures should again get up into the 40s.
2. Pool: The second of two open forums to talk about the Patton Park pool is coming up on Thursday afternoon. The forum will be at 1 p.m. in the meeting room at Hamilton-Wenham Library where the pool committee wants to hear from the public what it would want in a new aquatic facility at the park.
3. Chocolate: The 11th annual Salem So Sweet, Chocolate and Ice Sculpture Festival had originally been planned to wrap up on Thursday, but due to last weekend’s blizzard it has been extended through the coming weekend. Ice sculptures will be in display this weekend all over the downtown area, which was postponed from last weekend.
4. News: The best way to keep up with Hamilton-Wenham Patch is to get our free morning newsletter in your e-mail inbox. If you do not get it, you can sign up for free.
5. School Budget: The Hamilton-Wenham Regional School Committee is holding a public hearing about the proposed fiscal 2014 budget at Buker Elementary School on Thursday night. It starts at 7 p.m. and members of the public can let the committee know what they think about the budget.
